Medium-chain triglycerides are saturated fatty acids that contain an aliphatic tail of 6–12 carbon atoms associated with it. Medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) are the fatty acids found in MCTs. They are made up of a glycerol backbone and three fatty acids like all triglycerides. Basically, they are partially man-made fats. They are widely used to treat a common disorder like food absorption disorders including diarrhea, steatorrhea, celiac disease, liver disease, and digestion problems. Moreover, MCTs are also used to treat diabetes.
